Cops searching for suspect in paramedic shooting

First responder shot during active shooter situation in Dallas

A Dallas Fire-Rescue paramedic and a bystander were shot on a residential street late Monday morning as first responders answered a call for help, police say.

Dallas police locked down the area after they found the injured paramedic lying in the street. The robot showed two dead bodies - one believed to be the shooter and that of another person.

The gunman who shot and injured a paramedic treating a civilian in Dallas claimed on his Facebook page to be the New Black Panther Party's longtime national minister of defense. The paramedic was gravely wounded, and is in critical but stable condition after surgery at the Baylor Medical Center.

Rawlings said Monday said the neighbor was also in intensive care, but no further information was shared about his condition Tuesday.

The injured Dallas Fire-Rescue paramedic is in critical but stable condition and has been moved to the ICU after undergoing surgery.

The incident on Monday began shortly before 11:30 a.m. when police officers, responding to a call about a shooting, found an ambulance was already there and a paramedic was down, Pughes said.

The city released a statement Monday saying officers were responding to a shooting around 11:30 a.m. when a Dallas Fire-Rescue EMT Unit was struck.

The paramedic is a 36-year-old married father of one with another child on the way, Evans said.

A Dallas officer was also treated at the scene for an unspecified injury, authorities said.




"We believe ... as a result of those actions that paramedic's life was saved", Pughes said.

A gunman shot a member of the Dallas Fire-Rescue Department on Monday, according to a tweet from the city's police department.

Dallas police Sgt. Robert Watson.

UPDATE 1:05 p.m.: NBCDFW reports the area where the shooting took place is consistently listed as one of the most unsafe areas in Dallas. When he was approached by officers, Brown said, "I'm high and I have a gun".

The sergeant drove the injured paramedic in his squad vehicle to Baylor University Medical Center, where the paramedic underwent surgery, according to the Washington Post.

The suspected gunman who opened fire on paramedics in East Dallas Monday has been found dead.

- Jason Wheeler (@jasonwheelertv) May 1, 2017@DallasFireRes_q confirming 1 paramedic shot while responding to a call. WFAA is reporting that police have surrounded a home on Reynolds Avenue in East Dallas.

"In this particular event ... it came in as a shooting incident and buried in the notes it originally said self-inflicted, so that's what they believed they were going into", he said.

The initial shooting victim was also hospitalized and is in an intensive care unit, Rawlings said.
